No,I don't need confirming evidence outside the Bible,<quoted text>
1) You are still using the Bible itself as proof of the Bible itself. It's circular, see? You need confirming evidence outside the Bible. I don't care if it was written in Luke that Jesus lifted a VW bus and a thousand people saw it. You need confirming evidence outside Luke to even begin to say it might have happened that way.
Christianity is sorely lacking evidence outside its own internal set of writings. And since those writings describe miracles we know scientifically are HIGHLY unlikely to be true we cannot just take it on faith.
2) To answer your question about what it would take to believe in God: evidence. Lots of evidence. The kind of evidence we accept for other things. But you are right. The nature of God, as described by believers, is well outside the domain of science. It is absolutely identical to fantasy.
It is you,that wants confirming evidence outside the Bible.
It is absolutely identicalto fantasy,only to those who donot understand the basis for our faith.
Since they are not able to understand it,their only solution in dealing with it is to dismiss it as magic,goosey feelings,blind faith, or that we are being deceived by our minds,none of which are true.
But,those who do not understand and have never experienced or practiced the basis for our faith,have somehow convinced themselves,that they are the experts on that subject and are therefore qualified to interpret,according to their opinions,why and what we should believe in...
Atheists keep regurgitating the same cliches,
"We talk about God because you are trying to force Bible Study in public schools."
I don't see that topic being publicly discussed. It is only,marginally discussed here.
All I keep reading from Atheists is their opinions as to why God does not exist,as if they feel a need to convince themselves that their beliefs are valid.
If you don't believe in God,then accept that you don't believe in God and stop asking for evidence that would prove his existence.
If you want that evidence,I can only tell you where you can get it,I can not get it for you.
